The Snake River Sporting Club, which fell into foreclosure in 2010 after developing a Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course, clubhouse, and 68 residential lots, will reopen this fall as an equestrian-focused development. Atlanta-based Cygnus Capital bought the place in February and hired Jeff Heilbrun, the former COO of Teton Pines Resort and Country Club, to turn the place around. Heilbrun plans on re-opening the club this fall, and will be running it with a focus on equestrian amenities in tandem with the 437-acre Snake River Bend Ranch, which Cygnus bought in July and which has riding trails that lead into Teton National Forest. That property formerly belonged to the Edgcomb family, of steelmaking fame, as did the Snake River Sporting Club before it went into foreclosure.
Heilbrun plans to have the clubhouse open this October, and the golf course, which he found to be in decent shape, open by next spring.
